RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 163592717 LA English T1 The well of lost plots : a Thursday Next novel A1 Fforde, Jasper., PB Viking PP New York YR 2004 SN 0670032891 9780670032891 AB When soon-to-be single parent Thursday Next emerges from her comfortable life inside an unpublished book, she steps into a new age of fictional narrative. The entire book world is abuzz with anticipation of an improved Text Operating System that moves from the 8-plot to the new 32-plot story system. But danger lurks when Jurisfiction agents keep turning up dead. When Thursday steps in, she encounters Dickens' Miss Havisham, passes through Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, and deals with a mispeling vyrus, holesmiths, and unionized nursery rhymes. THE WELL OF LOST PLOTS--the place where all fiction is created--is an exhilarating romp through literary classics, an insightful look into how books are made, and a jewel in the long tradition of British nonsense.
